In case you have not heard and feed Merrick
Nestle Purina Buys Merrick Pet Care
There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.
This is a very disappointing merge! I don't understand the story though where it says,
The transaction is expected to be completed over the next several months.After that, Merrick will continue to operate as an independent business.
I have switched to Earthborn Holistic, thinking I would go back to Merrick someday but now I think I will stick with Earthborn.
I couldn't believe it either… how disappointing. Henny I gave Roxie Earthborn and she did fantastic on it, it's a great food!!! @cali baker

there goes the quality.

"Merrick will continue to operate as an independent business. According to Purina, no changes are planned for Merrick’s management or operations." caught my eye too....According to Purine their own brands are great food, so you know you can't trust them...
Seems as if they are all slowly give in...Purina & the like
must be buying up their quality competition. Not good
news that options are shrinking to feed quality kibble.
That link a member posted a few weeks ago about the
true quality food out of all the top ranked brands was
eye opening and truly sad, so very few nutritious and
affordable ones to feed our beloveds.
My 1st bully, Brutus
RIP beloved boy.
I know raw food isn't without risks, but it brought a smile on my face this morning when I prepared my boys food...Voitto's menu today is reindeer organs, horse liver, tripe, sauerkraut and fish oil. I also know my suppliers and trust them 100%.
Yikes. We've had Effie on Merrick Puppy Recipe for quite some time now. We had plans to switch her to Earthborn Holistic, but then she hurt her leg. She was on a lot of medications, and I didn't think it would be wise to switch her food over, when we were already dealing with the stress of her injury. Now that she's healed, and out of her splint we are definitely going to go ahead and make the change. Even though it states that Merrick will continue to operate independently, ultimately Purina is in charge- and I don't like that. At any given point couldn't they instruct Merrick to change what they're doing? Not worth it to me. Earthborn Holistic is supposed to be an awesome food, and I'm sure Effie will love it

I have to say I'm not thrilled - we started Tiberius out on Merrick when we brought him home and since Purina has bought them out (even though they say it won't change the way it's made) I'm worried about the changes that could happen. So we are looking into other brand options for our pup.

Yikes...I guess it's time to look for an alternative. This is disappointing bc Goob has done so well on this food and he loves it. What a shame.
